Buy Ammo Online - Shoot - Repeat
Our all time favorite caliber is the 22 Long Rifle (22LR). It is a light recoiling fun round to shoot and it is almost always the cheapest ammo that you can get ahold of! The subsonic stuff is nice to shoot because it's much quieter than the high velocity stuff, or even the standard velocity stuff. But the subsonic 22LR ammo will generally not cycle a semi-automatic pistol or rifle.
Enter CCI's Quiet Semi-Auto 22LR ammo!
There is a staggering variety of 22LR ammo available
This particular CCI ammo has the light recoil and quietness of the subsonic stuff, but with just enough extra oomph to cycle semi-automatic actions. It's worked in every 22LR pistol and rifle I've tried it in.
It was scarce or non-existent during the pandemic but is generally available now. It's ammo that I never want to be out of again and I have already stocked up!
